Do you start out to do something and not follow through because of what could go wrong?
I enjoy reading God’s word. It gives me comfort and direction for my life. Now, I don’t always get it right but it is such a reference point. This verse reminds me that God is concerned about every detail of my life. Even if I stumble, He still holds my hand. The Lord knows I need Him to hold my hand sometimes because I can so easily get distracted.
This verse also reminds me that when things don’t go the way that I would like them to, God is still with me. I can remember taking my licensure exam for the second time in November 2016. I knew God had called me to this line of work but this test seemed to be a hindrance. I had taken it about a year before and I failed. I told myself that I wasn’t going to take it again. As time went on, I decided to study for it and was diligent in doing this. I ended up passing my exam! I was so excited.
Even though we stumble, the Lord will keep ups from falling. He holds our hand and guides us as we go through this life.
I’m glad that I don’t have to do this all on my own and neither do you. 💛
